It looks and sounds an awful lot like a stroke, but no definitive word has been given yet. Here is the statement released by the DOJ:
"At the conclusion of his remarks before the Federalist Society Annual Dinner in Washington, D.C., Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey collapsed.
"Upon his collapse, emergency first aid was rendered by the Attorney General's security detail and a doctor who was on the scene.
"The Attorney General arrived at George Washington University Hospital shortly thereafter.
"The Attorney General is conscious, conversant and alert. His vital statistics are strong and he is in good spirits. He is receiving excellent care and appreciates all of the good wishes and prayers he has received. The doctors will keep him overnight for further observations.
"We will update the public when we have additional information."
I hope he is alright. I don’t like the guy, but don’t want to see anything bad happen to him either. He’ll be out of office in a couple of months, so it we want him to stay around and hear how all his decisions were so wrong.
